We just want to start off by saying our first week of June Virtual classes for are going great! The kids are being so attentive and trying hard. This gives the staff great hope for the future! I just wanted to go over the plan for Recital.
As you know, Durfee cancelled our original Recital date. I was able to secure another local venue, White’s of Westport. After much discussion and parent input we decided not to hold a traditional Recital with ticket sales and a large crowd.
With so much unknown we feel it is best to play it safe and do a recorded Recital. This will entail each group coming in at a designated time, based on how many people we are allowed, and having each dance recorded individually by our professional videographer in the hotel ballroom. From there, he will put together all the dances on one DVD for a full Recital which will be available for purchase.
We feel this is the best way to avoid large crowds and keep everyone comfortable. Since we do not have guidelines yet, I cannot offer you any idea of a schedule. What I can tell you is we have the venue from 9:00 AM – 9:00 PM on Saturday July 25th so I am confident we will be able to get every dance recorded in a timely fashion. Once we get closer, I will have more information.
